Mangia means "eat" in Italian—and Italians are known for dining with gusto. The concept for this meetup is simple: A delicious meal shared with others and laced with friendly chat is among life's great pleasures wherever you are, and Seattle has become a mecca for those who delight in dining out. Mangia is committed to connecting diners who relish good food and spirited conversation—whether the destination is classy, cutting edge, or simply cozy. From fine-dining outposts and al fresco meals when the sun shines to Sunday brunches and inexpensive ethnic restaurants, the culinary possibilities are tantalizing. The group is small, and the participants are warmhearted and involved. The few rules that apply are important: Attend a few meetups each year. Show up for each meetup you sign on for. Talk with your dining companions, whether they're old friends or new acquaintances. And enjoy good food and good times with an interesting, intimate group of diners. Mangia bene, vivi felice—eat well, live happy!
Please know that Mangia is a small but involved group. You will need to be an active member to remain in the group. $5 annual fee.
